I have had this amazing opportunity to shadow Dr. Khan for the month of May 2022 as my USCE at HCA Healthcare ( Northwest, Tomball, Kingwood ) and Epic Heart and Vascular Center. The clinical experience was incredible there and I would highly recommend this to other medical graduates who are seeking USCE. This 1 month has allowed me to find much more potential in me and familiarized me with U.S healthcare system. I have found a great deal of confidence in me through this. Dr. Khan has made me jump and do things like a resident of any residency programme. He has encouraged me from the first day to observe patients under his supervision and let me present various cases to him.

I had EMR exposure as an observer in best possible way on daily basis. I was able to get a good command on reading EKG, Echocardiography and Stress Test, also learnt about holter monitor and mobile cardiac telemetry. I used to observe 30-40 patients daily in clinic with him and then inpatient rounds at the hospital, their charting, and interventional procedures in early morning and/or in evenings, this routine has given me tough time yet improved my time management skills. I have had the opportunity to observe various interventional procedures of cardiology like Cardiac Catheterization, PCI, Stent Implantation, Balloon Angioplasty, Atherectomy.

Also, I observed various vascular techniques which I found quite interesting like Varicose veins occlusion and sclerotherapy , endogenous radiofrequency thermal ablation. I have witnessed the Vascular Doppler Studies, Exercise Stress Testing and Nuclear Cardiac Testing. Dr. Khan made my habit to review various new articles on cases which we used to see in inpatient rounds and that motivated me to write a case report under his supervision.

Dr. Khan is an amazing mentor. Not only he has given me knowledge but also has sharpen my mind, horned my skills and groomed me professionally to achieve my goals in medicine field. Apart from this, Dr. Khan has friendly and humble nature with other staff at the clinic and hospital and with patients. This makes the clinic environment very healthy to work at. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Khan and all his team ( NPs, MAs, USG team) for giving me this tremendous amount of support, guidance and upbringing such qualities in me which I was unaware of. I wish him and his team very good luck.
